Conceptualizing Module III

Many researchers focus on one impact of climate change in isolation, but researchers gain a global perspective when they come together. A timely lesson teaches scholars about the projected impacts of global temperature increases. Then they divide into groups to discuss actions and adaptations for dealing with the vastly changing weather and then regroup to share their insights.
